Reviews
"Admirably fiery, well-spoken, and unswervingly committed...very inspirational"
Video Librarian

"All six videos feature well-selected historical footage, lively action, and, above all, engaging heroes who have much to show to young people. This series demonstrates to teenage viewers that individuals can make a difference and there are ways they, too, can get involved in their own communities."
MultiCultural Review

"Visually dynamic and deeply personal in approach. Hart and Côté avoid ponderous docu-speak pacing...Instead, they concentrate on getting as close and personal with a subject's psyche as the camera will permit. The results are often moving."
The (Montreal) Gazette

"This series is highly recommended for libraries and media centers."
Orlando Archibeque, University of Colorado, MC Journal
